Hi Larry – I’m glad you are enjoying winter shuffleboard in TX. SHuffleON is the Ontario Shuffleboard Association, which looks after shuffleboard in Ontario (ON), Canada. To find out more about USA shuffleboard, I suggest visiting the National Shuffleboard Association links page – http://www.national-shuffleboard-association.us/links.html. You would also be welcome to come up to visit us in Canada this summer – see https://theshufflersnews.wordpress.com/
My name is Jeff Mitchell. I live in Barrie and have a summer property in Muskoka, where we have an outdoor 40′ shuffleboard court. It is a cement base, but has detroiated over the years. Approx. 15 years ago we obtained a roll up rubber/vinyl surface, but unfortunately it too has detoriated and needs replacing.
I believe the new format of the Click poly tiles would work best in our setting.
I was just speaking to Carl Rogerson, and he graciously suggested that I should be connecting with Bill Boyes. Which is the purpose of this message. My number is 705-734-5648 / email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Since we only use the court recreationally, I am somewhat challenged to purchase a new one for $1,250 plus. Therefore if you could post on your site my request / offer to purchae a slightly used Poly Click surface that would be greatly appreciated. At this stage I truly won’t need til next spring; so if you are aware of a playing surface that is available either new or used for under $1,000 that would be greatly appreciated.
Do you know of any outdoor shuffleboard courts in Ontario (and if at all possible closer to Hamilton) that are available to play on?
Hello – The only ones I know of are in Midland Ont. I will post your question to everyone.
Can you recommend a company to install a floor shuffleboard court in the GTA?
Drew – we recommend DOM SPORTS for shuffleboard courts. They have roll-out courts which are very good. I have shuffled on courts built into linoleum flooring but I cannot find any reference to a manufacturer or installer. There are snap-together courts available from our sponsor,
DOM Sports – website is everythingshuffleboard.com. Please keep us informed of your success finding the kind of courts you need.

We are planning to resurface our outdoor concrete shuffleboard courts in Port Rowan, Ontario. Could you recommend what type of paint should be used for this purpose? It was recommended to use H & C Concrete Stain by Sherwin Williams but we could not find it on their website. Any recommendations for painting and what paint to use would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hello Frida. Thanks for your question about resurfacing outdoor concrete shuffleboard courts. I will query others in the Ontario shuffleboard Association and see if we got any recommendations. Please tell me how many courts you are resurfacing. Thanks, Bill B.
Hi Bill, we have two courts. Thanks.
Hi Freda – did you see the DOM SPORTS info on resurfacing? – I looked up the DOM Sports (our sponsor) website which has lots of useful information, although the part about paint may be out of date as provincials laws have changed. http://www.domsports.com/pdfs/Building%20a%20Shuffleboard%20Court.PDF
We will be using Nella Wax Sealer but the bottle doesn’t show how to clean up your utensils afterwards. Dom Sports and other sites do not have any of this information either. Is anyone familiar with using this and what clean up is required for tray, roller etc. Thanks.
Freda – Nella-Seal is a wax/water mixture. Clean up with soap or detergent and water.
Some hints – Shake the Nella-Seal bottle well before using. It will separate over time so after about two years will need to be recombined using a paint mixer machine. Don’t apply too thick or on too hot a day or it will dry with cracks in the surface. I have never used a paint tray – just pour a bit out of the bottle and push around with the long-handle paint roller (not the big fuzzy type of roller), or a pad made from an old towel or use my favorite -piece of rug wrapped around a push broom. Yo can drag the broom-pad lightly over the court a a final “tipping off” (like applying a varnish finish). We used to be able to coat three courts from one bottle of Nella-Seal, and would do our busy (used three to four hours a week) courts three or four times a year. We would wash our courts beforehand with a little soap and water and rinse well, then dry before putting on Nella-Seal. Wash in the morning, squeegee off (or use old towels), let dry in the sun , then apply Nella-Seal. In a dusty environment, damp-mop before applying the Nella_Seal.
Thanks. Your comments are very helpful as this is our first time doing this.
You are most welcome. Good Luck! Anyone else’s comments welcome.
Hello Bill and Or Carl, with Shuffleboard almost at a stand still, was thinking of purchasing a mat for my Driveway, it was suggested to contact you to inquire if if the OSC had any for sale, or if you may know of a club that may have one. Looked at Dom Sports the one I was interested in 475.00, but unfortunately may be to thin, my Shuffleboard Friends are very competitive, so would like something a little heavier, unfortunately more expensive. Your advise and suggestions would greatly be appreciated, if you know of a club who would be willing to sell a used mat we would be very interested. Thank you
Our neighborhood park in Montreal has an area for shuffleboard (croquet and horseshoe toss) which has been abandoned for more than 20 years. I took on the project of restoring it, so that people could come out and play – the lenght of cues is great for social distancing 😉 It is finally ready, and people are extremely enthusiastic. However, I am afraid the makeshift cues and pucks wont last…. I am writing to you in the hope that some members might have extra cues and pucks to give… They would be very welcomed and cherished !
